Conservation officer Flint Knibbs says as soon as they removed a mother bear and her cubs from the Elks Park area a new family moved in.
“It was quite an unusual situation. The very next day from when we took the sow and two cubs out of there, the very next day there was a sow and three cubs back in the exact same tree.”
Knibbs says they are monitoring the bears and as long as they don’t start getting into trouble they will be OK.
He says residents of the Elks Park area especially need to make sure their garbage is secure and they aren’t leaving out anything that will attract the bears in order to protect them.
